Well this hotel is almost my home when in Darwin whether its business or fun. Its an ideal location if you need the airport and the free shuttle is ideal and prompt. Easy check in always and the 2 bedroom stay is comfortable. If you have transport its a great base but if you want the city then perhaps look... More

Wouldn't recommend! Booked for 1 night only, didn't check in until 1am due to a late flight. When I arrived they couldn't find my booking, then when we finally got to the room, we were sound asleep. At 4am the emergency evacuation alarm went off, we were all evacuated and waited out the front of the hotel in our pj's... More

I thought the rooms and furnishings were beautiful and classy. It was lovely to be able to relax in comfort and know that the friendly hotel staff could be contacted if there were any problems or requests.

My wife & I stayed for just the one night at the Rydges Motel at the airport recently. Service was great. Room was OK. Was a bit pricey but alas the alternate choices were not that attractive either. As a result we stayed for the once night before moving across to a bungalow at the Resort.

Stayed two nights at the hotel last week. Was due to stay at the airport resort but was booked in error into the hotel. Rooms were clean - 601 had a view of the runway. Couldn't here any airport noise though. Staff all friendly and happy to help. Housekeeping bit weird though. Left a dirty washer on the TV that... More

I stayed overnight awaiting connecting flight early in the morning. Handy free shuttle bus to terminal 24/7. Very clean, exceptional staff and very modern with room having everything you need. My only negative is the selection of tea and coffee in the room - well past use by dates and tasted very stale, The only restaraunt in the grounds was... More

I stayed here 2 nights before a flight. The room was clean and comfortable, although the pillows needed to be replaced, they were very lumpy. I found everything I needed, laundry, pool, bar and Chinese restaurant. Shuttle to airport, although you can walk. I was surprised by the lack of aircraft noise, however there was plenty of the typical door... More

Fortunately we only had to spend one night in this place. Its positive features are that it is extremely close to the airport (and we had an early morning flight, which is why we chose this hotel), the beds are comfortable, we heard no aircraft noise, there was a complimentary shuttle to and from the airport and the staff were...

Thank you for the review, we do offer a variety of different room categories which differ in size and facilities, with regards to the drainage I have not received this feedback before, if you can kindly advise the room number you were in and I will have our maintenance team investigate further. All the best More

Not so accommodating desk staff. Special membership cards are not introduced to me and my companions who frequently booked at Rydges. Can improve more on hospitality and treating customers. Computer doesn't smell nice. Bed comforter not comfortable, and remains the same for the 3rd time of my overnight stays.

Thank you for the review, it is disappointing to learn of your check in experience, this is clearly not our usual warm and welcoming standard. On your next visit we would be more than happy to have you sign up to our Priority Guest Rewards program which will give you some great benefits such a, late checkout of 1pm, welcome... More
